Best pizza in Crisp County! Worth the drive and wait. Always satisfied! You can't go wrong with the Loaded Nachos, beer and pizza, Thai wings, ect. The owners are great and wait staff are very friendly. This is NOT a chain, so you can expect great food and service!

I am not reviewing as a traveler but as someone who lives in the area and was very glad to see a place like the Cove open. They advertise their pizza as The Best Pizza at the Lake. Well, in reality, it's the only pizza at the lake, but it may be some of the best pizza in the world.... More

We have eaten here several times and the food has always been great. We love the outdoor seating when the weather is nice and they have great pizza. I have only tried two of the pizzas, one was the kitchen sink the other was bacon, chicken, ranch and they are both great. I have also had the spinach artichoke dip... More

12 of us golfers stayed at the cabins At Lake Blackshear, and The Cove is just outside the main entrance. We ordered pizza one night which i went and picked up. I ordered 6 pizzas, with a variety and they were excellent, but surprisingly a little bit on the high side, price wise....but it is worth the money. Get the... More

We were down at the lake enjoying time on the boat and didn't want to actually "go out" to eat. We called in to The Cove and ordered two pizzas for our crew. Fifteen minutes later we were picking it up from them and taking back on the boat. It was a great sunset dinner on the boat eating WONDERFUL... More

It's not New York Pizza but it was very good. We ordered a supreme medium size and it was enough for two people

We go to The Cove often, first, we love the owners! It is amazing what they've created, a fun family atmosphere with great food! Can't go wrong with anything you order, but I especially love the Frito Loco! stuffed fried burritos with whatever you want to put in them! Delish :)

I love a few miles from the Cove, so it is my go to pizza place. The pies are always fresh and delicious. Their crust is not to thin or thick and is never over bearing. The salads are delicious and the staff is attentive. Very neat dining area with both inside and outside seating.

This family restaurant opened up in May 2010 and has the best subs and pizzas that I have ever had in my life. The local couple that own and operate it are very friendly and accommodating! Try it!!! It's the best place to eat in Cordele or at Lake Blackshear!!!
